Jeremiah 31:16: Reward

Saturday, August 17, 2019

Jeremiah 31:16: Cease your cries of mourning, wipe the tears from your eyes. The sorrow you have shown shall have its reward. 

These are words we welcome heartily.  They are words we are anxious to hear.  They tell us that transformation can and does take place.  This is good news indeed.

God says: There is no valley so deep that I cannot and will not plumb its depth in my search for you.  There is no mountain so high that I cannot and will not climb its height in my quest for you.  There is no world too wide, no dream too dense, no nightmare too horrific that will keep me from you.  And my love for you is so intense that when I touch you those tears of sorrow become tears of joy.  So cease your crying . . . and bring your sorrow to me. 

The faithful need not fight, we are told.  The faithful only need turn to God for all for God turns all harm to good.  God transforms all.  God is all we will ever need.  God is our reward.
